Found You a Nice Little Thai Spot

Today, in West Town: A sparse little urban Thai food spot is opening to serve you lunch-friendly homemade pork sausage and fried chicken over garlic-ginger rice.
Tomorrow, wherever you may be: You’ll likely be hungry and thinking about what we just said. Well played, universe.

BAR RESCUE

Mike Sheerin Saved Trinity Bar

Things were not going well for Trinity Bar. Then Mike Sheerin and a friend decided to rehab the place, install a cocktail den in the basement and create an elevated menu with things like mussels in blonde ale on it. Then things abruptly stopped not going well.

An Afternoon Dance Party at Daley Plaza

Some of the best dance parties happen when you least expect it. Like when you’re heading to lunch on a typical Friday in October and notice a soul-electronic DJ spinning some tunes outdoors in the Daley Plaza. Yeah. Exactly like that.

Kickoff event Oct 16, noon-1pm, no cost, Wired Fridays at Daley Plaza, 50 W Washington St

Like Prom, Only All Scary and Stuff
THE KING AND I

Like Prom, Only All Scary and Stuff

The Music Box is throwing a celebration of all things Stephen King this Friday. Show up early in your best ’70s attire for a Black Prom–themed cocktail hour before heading into the theater for a special midnight screening of Carrie. Stay late if you just sort of need a minute.
